Wholesale Natural Kapok

Nothing compares to kapok. Softer and lighter than down, perfectly compressible for pillows, and naturally harvested from the Ceiba tree, kapok is the ideal filling for a pillow. Kapok is harvested from seed pods that are dropped from trees in tropical rain forest regions, meaning your purchase of kapok is helping to preserve the life of a tree and encourage local economies in Indonesia and other tropical regions. 

Almost no work is required to turn the raw material into bedding fiber: it's manually picked clean, spun, and sent to us! If you like clean and sustainable products, you'll love kapok. And if you love soft pillows, you'll settle for nothing else.

Kapok is a natural fiber that comes from the Ceiba Tree in Central America. Kapok fibers come from the trees seed pods, which shed seasonally, meaning there is no machinery required to harvest them.  With a silky and fluffy consistency, kapok has the benefits of being fluffy like down, but plant-based like cotton, making it a wonderful vegan down alternative.

Kapok - Vegan & Sustainable alternative to down, Best for sleepers who want a super soft, fluffy pillow; Our best-selling sleep pillow!

πŸ₯ Soft & fluffy, similar to down pillows (minus the animal products)

🌳 A vegan, sustainable fiber from the Ceiba Tree

🌱 Hypoallergenic & Ethically sourced

πŸ‘Œ Hand-stuffed your own pillow to avoid lumps & customizable so you can find the perfect firmness


  • Kapok fibers were in the all-natural life preservers used by G.I.s in World War II.
  • In 1920, explorers conquering Mt. Everest typically wore high-altitude boots with kapok insulation, leather outers, gaiters, and crampons
  • Kapok fibers are one eight (0.08) the weight of cotton.
  • Kapok was one of the first ancient non-food plants cultivated across Southeast Asia.
  • Kapok was routinely used for pillows before goose down; Kapok is Retro Green.
    • In theory, as the down moults naturally, the birds shouldn't mind if it’s taken. The reality: goose down is the byproduct of keeping millions of birds around the world in cages, the lion’s share before they are slaughtered for cheap meat or foie gras.  Therefore, buying down products carries the high risk of making you complicit in this industry. 
  • Kapok is a vegetable down. It’s been used for years in the maritime industry because of its buoyancy.  In the 1940s, all sorts of items - life belts, seating cushions, mattresses — were filled with Kapok, which is water repellant and enables it to keep afloat from 30 to 35 times its weight.  Ordinary cork can only support 5 times its weight. — article in Grey River Argus, 16-October 1907, which was published 107 years ago to the day!!!

I'm using it to stuff some pillows and it seems super fluffy! Though I recommend wearing a mask when pulling it as the air will get full of little fluffs that are hard to keep out of your face. It definitely has some natural detritus is in, like tiny little leafs and twigs, but that seems like part of what you get when you seek out "natural kapok" lol. The only thing I find confusing is various places on the internet recommend for or against washing kapok? I definitely expect I will be washing it at least once (maybe just a small sample in a pillowcase to test the effect). Hopefully it survives.

I used the kapok filling to stuff Euro shams as I wanted something non-toxic for a guest room. Was the first time I'd used the product so had a slight learning curve. But the pillows turned out great, and have enough left I think I try my hand at re-stuffing the seat of an old chair.

The kapok I ordered is just wonderful! I used it for all my pillows in my home and also made a dog bed for my new puppy! He ran right to the puppy pillow when we brought him home! I was amazed, I thought I would have to show him. Even the cats sleep on it. They are getting thier own pillows too! It is very fluffy to work with. I recommend goggles, it does get in your eyes otherwise.

The kapok was extremely soft and fluffy - even nicer than anticipated. It's a little messy to use and sticks all over, probably would have been smart to do outside. But not that big of a deal. Used to make pillows with organic covers. Would definitely buy again!

Good costumer service, fast shipping and the fiber is good quality. It comes compacted in a vacuumed bag and in a fairly small box, which is very convenient for storage.
Have you verified if the kapok is sprayed/treated with any insecticides or fungicides between harvest and your receipt? We have found that certain raw materials are treated to prevent insect or fungus contamination during initial processing, storage, and transit.
Hello there, the only product we are sure about concerning all of your question here, are all of our GOTS Organic certified products, which are the GOTS fabrics, cotton and wool we carry. The kapok we carry is not GOTS Organic Certified. However, we have been working with our current suppliers for over 10 years and we have never had an issue with the kapok we carry. Very little to No reaction to our chemical and allergy sensitivities customers. We do always suggest getting a FREE small sample and doing your own testing before using any of our products. You can make that request here: https://www.whitelotushome.com/search/sample.html

Thank you very much for considering White Lotus Home! Marlon
Hello, Are products filled with kapok washable? Thank you!
No, sorry!

Not of our fiber filled products are machine washable, but they are ways to still get them cleaned by using a green or organic dry cleaner, pure air, sun and maybe a dryer. Please see more about our care instructions here: https://www.whitelotushome.com/faq/#019f5027-5f36-e611-80c0-0cc47a7c10db
When White Lotus makes its kapok pillows, how do you "fluff" the fibers and prevent lumpy pillows? Do you use some kind of metal brush to separate the fibers or have any other tips for getting evenly distributed pillow stuffing?
It is actually all done by hand, we manually pull the fibers apart to fluff them, then gently grab it and stuff the casing of the pillow. Once you do that you can also put it in the NO Heat/Air Fluff cycle in a dryer, which can help redistribute the fibers also. Good luck!
Is The kapok White Lotus Home uses in pillows or to sell as a bulk fiber, certified organic?
The kapok we have been using since 2008 or so, is not organic certified. It is a fiber that grows in the rainforest just like bamboo and there has never been much of a request or need for organic certification. It comes from Indonesia, since it does not grow in large quantities in the USA due to our lack of rainforest weather. However, we are able to get it GOTS Certified organic as soon as we are able to buy over 20 tons at a time. Something we are going to consider doing in the next year or so.

Where is this kapok grown?
Hello, we get our Kapok mainly from Southeast Asia, like Indonesia. Thanks!
How often do you recommend replacing the kapok in a pillow? I bought some from you probably a year or so ago -- is it time to replace the fill entirely or just add to it? The fill has been in a sealed pillow that has been covered by a pillow case (so two layers of cover). I'd like to take advantage of your great sale but am trying to decide how much kapok I need -- do I replace entirely or just add to the existing fill? Thanks!
Hello, It really depends on the current condition of the pillow. If it feels to you it can use some more fill, feel free to go ahead and add some more and see how that feels. Our minimum is 5 lbs which one standard pillow can be filled with about 2.5 lbs. If you have further questions, email us at info@whitelotushome.com or call 732-828-2111.

Thank you,
Hello, Is the kapok you sell organic? Thanks!

No, the Kapok we sell is not certified organic.
